The negligent driver leaves the car in neutral, and the emergency brakes are defective. The car rolls from rest down the incline with a constant acceleration of 4 . 96 m / s 2 and travels 24 . 5 m to the edge of the cliff. The cliff is 23 . 5 m above the ocean. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Find the car’s position relative to the base of the cliff when the car lands in the ocean. Correct answer: 19 . 5471 m. Explanation: Given : a = 4 . 96 m / s 2 , l = 24 . 5 m , h = 23 . 5 m , and θ = 32 . 8 . The speed of the car when it reaches the edge of the cliff is given by v 2 = v 2 i + 2 a l = 2 a l since v i = 0 m / s, so v = 2 a ℓ = radicalBig 2 (4 . 96 m / s 2 ) (24 . 5 m) = 15 . 5897 m / s . Now, consider the projectile phase of the car’s motion. The initial vertical velocity is v iy = v sin θ = (15 . 5897 m / s) sin(32 . 8 ) = 8 . 44509 m / s . and the vertical velocity with which the car strikes the water is v 2 y = v 2 iy + 2 g h = v 2 sin 2 θ + 2 g h = (15 . 5897 m / s) 2 sin 2 32 . 8 + 2 ( 9 . 8 m / s 2 ) (23 . 5 m) = 531 . 92 m 2 / s 2 , so that v y = radicalBig 531 . 92 m 2 / s 2 = 23 . 0634 m / s . To find the time of flight, v y = v iy + g Δ t Δ t = v y - v iy g The initial horizontal velocity is v ix = v cos θ and the horizontal motion of the car during this time is x = v ix Δ t = ( v cos θ ) v y - v iy g = (15 . 5897 m / s) cos 32 . 8 × (23 . 0634 m / s) - (8 . 44509 m / s) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) = 19 . 5471 m . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the length of time the car is in the air. Correct answer: 1 . 49166 s. Explanation: Using the vertical motion, v y = v iy + g t t = v y - v iy g = (23 . 0634 m / s) - (8 . 44509 m / s) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) = 1 . 49166 s . 003 10.0 points A soccer player kicks a rock horizontally off a 37 . 2 m high cliff into a pool of water.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
